The singer revealed the details of her personal life in her autobiography.
In her book The Meaning of Mariah Carey, the 50-year-old singer has a lot of personal stories. Carey did not leave aside her marriage to Nick Cannon. The singer noted that the early marriage with the actor ended in “a dirty divorce, which could have been avoided.”
To be honest, I think Nick and I could have worked it out among ourselves, but our egos and emotions got fired up (which led to the cost of lawyers). This was hard. We both wanted to make sure our family was going well. We will always be a family and we will succeed
– writes Mariah.
In the book, Carey noted that before meeting 39-year-old Cannon and his “eternal adolescent spirit” she did not want to become a mother. But everything changed when they met. As a result, Cannon and Carey had twins Morrocan and Monroe, who are now 9 years old.
Our desire to have children turned into a powerful force, and that’s why we got married so quickly,
– the singer notes.
Mariah also compared Nick to her other ex-husband, Tommy Mottola. According to the singer, with Tommy, who is 20 years older than Mariah, she “felt like in prison.”
He perceived me as a child and tried to keep me in this role. For me it was like being a prisoner
– said the star. And with Cannon, Carey felt safe.
He is a good guy. He is driven by faith, he is ambitious. He worked in the entertainment industry for a long time and understood how crazy it was. And he paid attention to me
– summed up Carey.
